If there is one thing I love, it is a good Philly cheese steak. Half of that love belongs to the crusty, fresh-baked roll that it goes on; however, the other half belongs to the giant pile of meat, vegetables, and ooey-gooey Provolone cheese. This soup tastes exactly like the sandwich, only without the bread. I’m willing to overlook that for the delectable pile of meat in a super rich broth.
I thought I would make this last week to introduce Isak to the wonder that is cheese steak (of course he’s going through one of his picky phases). He ended up eating one piece of meat, some broth, and a few vegetables. The next day, he ate an entire bowl from the leftovers and decided it was ” ‘licious.” He just turned 3 yesterday, so I can only imagine that the worst of the strong food “opinions” are coming up this year, but whatever. Take a look at his PICTURES here–he’s had a great week! His food choices are definitely going to keep me on my toes in coming up with toddler-friendly primal recipes.
* DISCLAIMER: We do not have Isak on a strict primal diet (not that we are 100% strict, but we try to be 80-90% compliant). Breakfast and lunch for him are non-primal meals. I usually make him buckwheat pancakes (I make him a billion silver-dollar sized pancakes once a month and freeze them) or waffles, yogurt, fruit, cheese, meat, and crackers. He really enjoys the sesame flax-seed crackers, so we get those. Dinner, however, is primal because I’m not making separate meals. He can have some crackers or something if he wants with dinner, but I’m not a short-order cook, HA!

1 onion, sliced
2 green peppers, seeded and sliced
1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced thick
32 ounces beef BONE BROTH
Provolone cheese (not Whole30 compliant)
